    I'd imagine they would start hitting dealers next month!

    The production line is not dead, but I am not investing more in it yet.

    I'm quite fond of my Custom Shop handled Duke and Kephart. :thumbsup:

    Hopefully, we'll continue to still see some of these types of knives being mixed in for upcoming/future Fiddleback Friday sales?

    AEB-L is an excellent choice. Easy to grind, easy to sharpen (also easy to scratch unfortunately), takes a keen edge, tough as nails. It has been described as a stain resistant 52100. It is also currently the most well represented steel in my collection.

    Adam Grey was telling the same thing about AEB-L. It's basically a stainless 52100 with a fine carbide. It doesn't eat belts like some other stainless steels. He was talking great things about it.

    This is a good idea, I really liked the the Trailmaster outline, and in a good stainless steel too. I hope it does well.

    We will still be making these. We still have a good bit in stock.


    PT, you are a man foresighted. And I will be making some super thin muks too.

    LOL, I doubt anything saw-toothed or serrated ever coming out of that shop, but looking at the model names line up being very much sportsman with a wee bit of emphasis on fishing, which I think is awesome, there could be a niche for a dedicated bait knife :)

    For handles, we will be using regular knife handle materials. Wood, phenolics and bone will be used, but without liners.

    For anyone who is interested (that would be everyone), there are some pics of the new knives on IG.

    I assume they’ll be showing up here before too long as well.

    Looking good!
